Fort Pierce man faces additional child-porn charges

Another 54 charges of child pornography have been filed against a 29-year-old Fort Pierce man, the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.

Altamonte Wilson faced 10 counts of possession of child pornography and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon when he was arrested Aug. 25 at his residence on South 30th Street, Sheriff Ken J. Mascara said.

Investigators then examined Wilson’s electronic devices, and he acknowledged using software programs consistent the distribution of child pornography. The 19th Judicial Circuit State’s Attorney filed another 43 counts of possession of child pornography following the forensic examination.

Wilson had video and image files of children between the ages of 6 and 12 “engaged in sexual acts with adults and other children,” Mascara said in a prepared statement. There are no known local victims.

The sheriff’s office searched Wilson’s home in August with the South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Wilson is being held in the St. Lucie County Jail. Bail is set at $675,000.
